Welcome back to another episode of Within the Trenches. This is episode 65 and I have to say right off the bat that there was an issue with this one. As you heard in episode 64 we had to redo the entire thing due to a subject who showed up and was drowning out the microphones. Some knobs were turned down and one of them was never turned back up so some audio is missing. I do apologize but it’s still an awesome one so check it out and share.
In this episode I spoke with Rob, Director of Vigo County 911 in Indiana and National NENA North Central Region Director and Lori, Training Coordinator with INdigital telecom. I have been trying to get Lori on an episode for a long time now and it killed me that her audio is missing but only until 11 or so minutes in. After that you can hear her and the stories are good.
As always you can email the show at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hello all this is going to be a quick post for today. If you didn’t know I have an Associates in Web Development. I am currently seeking my Bachelor’s in Graphic Design and this post is simply a look to the future. A coming soon ad if you will for RMII Visions. In the past I have been approached with ideas for web sites and to be completely honest I was rather nervous to take on any work because of my fear of failure. Well after doing this blog and designing ads, banners, and logos, it’s time to man up and quit messing around. I’m not paying all this money in school loans for nothing so I am making it my goal to put myself through a boot camp of sorts to refresh my memory on the design languages that have gone stale and come close to vanishing from my brain.
RMII Visions will be back soon for web design with new skills and precision work. Graphic design is going strong and new projects are coming up. Thanks for your time and continued support for Jabber Log and all things under the RMII Visions brand.Post Views: 406

I have always been fascinated by ghosts and the unexplainable. The horror genre is my favorite and two local stories have always been a topic of interest. Growing up I heard stories of melon heads in West Michigan. I figured it was simply a story to scare me into good behavior but as I got older I continued to hear the story but in more detail. The story I heard was that of an asylum next to the Felt Mansion that housed the insane as well as children with “melon heads”. They were abused, treated badly, and ultimately left to roam the woods. It was also said that at one time they stayed at the mansion. The story spooked me but I wanted to know more. I actually wanted to see the building and the inside of the mansion. I had gone out to the mansion several times but could never get close to the supposed asylum. It has been destroyed but the mansion remains. I’ve been inside the mansion and although it has been restored, it felt as though I was being watched by something or someone. The stories are endless but after a little research I have found more info on the asylum. According to StrangeUSA.com,
this is located near the Felt Mansion it is a small building that is a behind the BMX track. It is all broken up and windows are busted due to kids. At night if you were to go and look around the house, curtains in the window move and windows open and close, and strange lights are often visible in them. If you were to go inside and walk around you can hear heavy breathing, loud footsteps, screams, and even able to see silhouettes of figures walking. Sometimes you can feel as though something walked threw you and sometimes you may encounter a sudden pain in the wrists of your hands over all the place has just a creepy feel. October 2004 update: This building is the last remaining building of Dunes Correctional Facility. Its the old Trustee Bldg. that housed 80 inmates. This place is now being vandalized horribly and the police ARE prosecuting! The Junction itself is a myth. Allegan County Historical Society has stated repeatedly that “The Junction” insane asylum has never existed.
So the building was once the Dunes Correctional Facility. Where I work it’s known as the old 80 man building. It was a low security prison that was eventually shut down because of funding. This is the story for the public but others seem to believe that much more happened in this area. That this is actually the infamous “Junction Asylum” where the melon heads originated. Wikipedia, who is not always a good or factual resource, had a little more info on the matter. “According to one story, they were originally children with hydrocephalus who lived at the Junction Insane Asylum near Felt Mansion. The story explains that, after enduring physical and emotional abuse, they became feral mutants and were released into the forests surrounding the asylum.” This story is amazing to me because it had to originate somewhere. Something had to happen for this to spread. I’m sure it could be made up but if this is true then someone out there has to have some sort of evidence. Maybe I should walk through the woods and see for myself what’s out there. Can you imagine finding the underground tunnels that were supposedly used by the children who escaped the asylum? It is also said that the melon head children had planned to kill the doctor who abused them. Once they did, there was no where to hide the body so they cut him up and hid parts around the mansion. If you or anyone you know has any solid information on what really happened in this area, I would like to know. Was this correctional facility the site of The Junction? I’ve heard many tales of the hauntings in this area. If you have experienced anything in this area please leave a comment. It’s about time that we solve the mystery of The Junction Asylum that has been said to not exist by the county. Stay tuned for part two and watch the video below. Cheers!
